  • This sunken park is a great suntrap and has a lovely feeling of peace. For foreign visitors there is a beautiful statue depicting the children of Lir. Great place to people watch or relax with a book and coffee.
  • Quite and peaceful memorial park surrounded by the bustle and noise of the city. It is dedicated to "all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish Freedom"
  • Beautifully beautiful like all the Irish men women and children along with it's friends it's dedicated to.... Peacefully peace in an area of so much turmoil. Nice short outdoor meditation admiration and why not a self mirror of what you are and what you aspire to be..... ♡♡♡
  • Well done. Worth a stop. 10 minutes. Free.
  • Beautiful, serene commemoration garden, invites a contemplative experience, deeply peaceful. The sculpture of the Children of Lir is magnificent.

Where to stay in Dublin

Dublin offers everything from luxury hotels to eclectic guesthouses. Explore over 1,000 years of history in the city on foot by staying at one of the hotels or hostels in the city center. The south side of the river has always been a popular place to stay, particularly near Temple University or the tourist nightlife center Temple Bar, but a new crop of attractive options has popped up on the north side as well. For more affordable accommodations, try a hostel or make your way toward St. Stephen's Green for a more comfortable stay at a mid-range hotel. If the artistic spirit of Dublin is what beckoned you, spend your holiday in a guesthouse near the creative Lower Gardiner Street.
